The Otago Sparks were well-beaten by the Canterbury Magicians
at Hagley Oval in Christchurch today, as the hosts romped to
a ten-wicket win.
Dimitri Mascarenhas will step down as New Zealand bowling
coach at the conclusion of next month's series against
Australia to spend more time with his family, the team said.
New Zealand have been stunned by qualifiers Nepal in the
opening match of the under-19 Cricket World Cup, losing by 32
runs in Fatullah.
The Otago Sparks have called in a little help from England
spinner Laura Marsh for the rest of the season.
